I have a Standby CM running 4.0.9 that we just installed. Tried to upgrade it to 4.0.19 and it just sat there in pending state for a long time. It appeared to be hung because I couldn't get to it remotely any longer. Rebooted the box and set it up as an AA instead. The game plan was to get it upgraded, then convert it to a Standby CM. So now the box sit's, showing online via the CM as a Standby CM (even though it's set to AA) and it still sits there in pending state. How can I get this resolved? TIA
You cannot change device mode from the CM, only from the command line. I would de-register it from the CM again, configure the device mode, set the role as standby and then re-register it. Otherwise it's database settings may not allow it to function correctly. Changing device modes is a fairly intrusive process in CMS.
Interesting interface note. I have not seen that to date, however if you can recreate it, I would have the TAC open a DDTS on it. It would be worth tracking.
